    I cannot find Thai hot sauce (Sriracha) anywhere around here. Even ChinaMart.
    Any suggestions gang?

    I can find the California made Huy Fong (rooster) sriracha @ SUper Walmart in my area.

    The ones I prefer are made in Thailand, and I can find them in Chicago's Chinatowns. My favorite brand of sriracha is Shark brand, made in Thailand.

    Mostly what this Wally Mart has is Mexican but I will check again. Unless I go to a specialty food place. Or I could do what I do when I'm buying for Mexican foods and follow a Mexican around and see what he/she is buying. I can find a Chinaperson and follow them around and see what they buy in Chinese food and hope they lead me to it.
    lol

    We can get the rooster brand that Jim said above^^ at the grocery store, but I've never seen an imported Thai one around here. You might want to PM FIRE IT UP, he's the man with the hot stuff connections...

  6. I'm guessing if you live in an area that Chinese are called "Chinaperson," then it would be difficult to find Sriracha. haha [​IMG]

    What led to that was I thinkin Chinaman then I thot Chinawomen (didn't want to insult the opposite sex here) then chinaperson popped up. LOL I didn't catch myself on that one.

    technically the original versions are Thai. named after the city of Si Racha in Thailand. Huy Fong(rooster) Sriracha(made in California) is a vietnamese owned company.

    either way its good stuff.

    Sorry, but this post is just screaming for a Lebowski quote...

    The Dude: Walter, what is the point? Look, we all know who is at fault here, what the **** are you talking about?
    Walter Sobchak: Huh? No, what the **** are you... I'm not... We're talking about unchecked aggression here, dude.
    Donny: What the **** is he talking about?
    The Dude: My rug.
    Walter Sobchak: Forget it, Donny, you're out of your element!
    The Dude: Walter, the chinaman who peed on my rug, I can't go give him a bill, so what the **** are you talking about?
    Walter Sobchak: What the **** are you talking about? The chinaman is not the issue here, Dude. I'm talking about drawing a line in the sand, Dude. Across this line, you DO NOT... Also, Dude, chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature. Asian-American, please.
    The Dude: Walter, this isn't a guy who built the railroads here. This is a guy...
    Walter Sobchak: What the **** are you...?
    The Dude: Walter, he peed on my rug!
    Donny: He peed on the Dude's rug.
    Walter Sobchak: Donny you're out of your element! Dude, the Chinaman is not the issue here!

    heres the Shark brand from Thailand, really good.

    Take a gander @ the ingredients, no chemicals I cant pronounce that the Huy Fong one has.

    Less is better imho, and I try to avoid as many chemicals, High fructose corn syrup, salt, and other things food processors sneak into our food, sauces, and inject into the meat some folks buy.





    good luck with your search.
